Defence minister Espen Barth Eide (also known as Barth Vader in some circles) announced Friday the start of the biggest government acquirement in Norway's history - the order of 52 combat aircraft for the defence, the F-35. Also the American government have confirmed its support for the integration of the Norwegian developed and produced missile JSM (Joint Strike Missile). The sale potential of the missile is estimated at 20-25 billion NOK (about 4,2 billion USD). This opens up the opportunity for 450 new workplaces and the possibility for us to get a lot back on our investment for the JSF programme and acquirement of the aircraft.
